A request for proposals for Crossing Boundaries-Faith Traditions course development grants is scheduled for Spring 2016. Resources are being provided to support individuals in devoting their expertise, time, energy, and imagination to develop Faith Traditions courses for the Common Academic Program (CAP).

A limited number of course development grants will be supported by the Office of the Provost. The CAP Leadership Team (CAPL) will oversee this process. Successful grant applicants will be awarded $2500 per person for the development and implementation of a newly created or significantly revised Faith Traditions course. Proposals from all disciplines are encouraged. Courses satisfying the Faith Traditions component may be offered by any department provided that the courses incorporate some of the ideas from the introductory religious studies course and that they develop students' ability to examine their own faith commitments and to participate in dialogue with other faith traditions.

Proposals are due to Sawyer Hunley, Assistant Provost for CAP, at shunley1@udayton.edu by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their alignment with the Crossing Boundaries-Faith Traditions requriements and responses to the criteria and questions outlined in the request for proposals (RFP) document.
